While Prabhakar’s knowledge about the game is unquestionable, what remains to be seen is if the coach’s selection panel will shortlist him for the interview.

“There is so much talent in women’s game and I think I have the experience to help the likes of Mithali Raj, Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana," Prabhakar said.
